Objective: I can recognise and share my feelings about my experiences about sadness.
Watch the colour monster book through to the sad monster page.
Make a jar of blue objects e.g. – blue pom poms, glitter, sequins in water. Sellotape the lid, label it as Sad – Blue. Or you could make a collage of blue items.
Discuss shades of sadness.
E.g. Light blue- you might get over this in 5 minutes.
Dark blue- You might still feel sad about this the next day or week.
Sadness can be different levels. Give examples of what might be a light blue or dark blue sadness event.
